On July 26, 2024, more than 10,000 athletes and officials from more than 200 countries will sail nearly four miles across the water in front of 600,000 fans in the French capital.

More than 160 boats will pass through Paris’ famous bridges and monuments such as Notre Dame and the Louvre.

The closing ceremony is scheduled to be held at the Trocadero, a large garden and fountain overlooking the Eiffel Tower.

This breaks with the long-held tradition of the Summer Olympics of carrying athletes and officials into the stadium.

The safety of the stars will obviously be an issue because although there will be ticket stands, the public will also have free access to part of the waterfront.

IOC President Thomas Bach said: “Holding the Opening Ceremony along the Seine, the iconic river in the heart of the city, is perfectly in line with Paris 2024’s ambitions to recreate the Game model with how to extend participation to as many people as possible.

“Its staging will be groundbreaking. It will be a ceremony for the people, open to one and all.

“It will show the world the best of France. A party like no other – and the whole world is invited! ”

Paris will become the second host city after London to host the Summer Olympics on three separate occasions, following from the 1900 and 1924 Olympics.
